Tennis Player Iga Swiatek Won The French Open & A Journo Wanted To Know About Her Make-Up

Women are more than just good looks, flawless makeup, and designer clothing. They can wear multiple caps effortlessly and run a country while managing their own household. But even in 2022, people can’t see beyond their beauty and admire them for bringing accolades to the country professionally.

And the world’s no. 1 woman tennis player, Iga Swiatek, is a live example of that.

Iga recently won her second French Open title but all people were interested in was whether she likes to dress up and apply makeup when she goes out or not?

Yes, this was one of the questions (of the two-part query) the ace tennis player was asked by a journalist during a press conference right after her terrific win.

The journo was curious to know this because according to the reporter there are many players who stay hours in front of the mirror applying makeup before going to court. But she looked very natural.

But clearly, Igo didn’t entertain such sexist questions and responded perfectly to it.

Sharing the weird and sexist question that was asked to Iga, sports broadcaster Catherine Whitaker tweeted:

People online thought the question was problematic in more ways than one.

I wonder how many male players are asked about their grooming routine right after they have won a coveted title.
